Big Bang North West: Survival Kits, Sphero Robots & 3D Sculptures with FACT!

We are excited to announce that FACT will be exhibiting at the Big Bang North West 2017!

FACT is the Foundation for Art & Creative Technology in Liverpool. They engage with informal and formal learning and art through digital making.

“Visit our stand at the Big Bang North West and create survival kits for a future in which success or failure will be determined by how well you can access and protect information. We’ll show you how to stimulate young people to think critically and poetically about data, by combining digital making with speculative design. 3D print rings that visualise data, play with Sphero robots and use them as stimulus for new designs. Create sculptures of your online data using our data identikit!”

Wow, we can’t wait for this! Book your school group now for the Big Bang North West!

The activities on the FACT stand have been developed in response to ‘The New Observatory’ exhibition at FACT. The exhibition responds to the history of Bidston Observatory and asks questions about the future of observatories and data, when measuring devices become ubiquitous.

Activities include:
Observe and capture data with LittleBits
Make a model of your personal data
Think about data with thought blobs
Show data with a dancing Sphero robot pet
Wear data as a 3D printed ring
